Whiskey Trail : The James Beard House Menu Redux @ Max Downtown

On the Whiskey Trail with Max Downtown

On February 12, the team from Max Downtown was honored to present a dinner at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City. Standing at the stove where countless culinary elites have stood, Chef Christopher Sheehan executed a tremendous menu paired with exemplary Single Malts from Goa, India by Paul John Whisky. The response to this event was overwhelming, and as such we have decided to recreate this menu and present it at Max Downtown.

Please join the team again, this time in Hartford, for a fabulous JBH experience whisky pairing dinner.

Whiskey is Our Focus at Max Downtown

Since our reopening in September, Max Downtown has been focused on collecting the most exciting and exclusive whiskies available in the market. With the extraordinary demand for this category of drinks, we have seen great response from our guests and the trend continues.  One of the most exciting aspects of our whiskey program – aside from the addition of the Whiskey Wall – is the addition of Whiskey Flights. This is a great opportunity for anyone to taste a range of items in a comparative manner, really get to know the differences between the styles and learn a bit about various whiskey categories.

To start, we will be featuring the following combinations for whiskey flights through the month of December:

7th Annual Whiskey Dinner at Max’s Oyster Bar Featuring Rye Whiskey

RYE: A New York-inspired Cocktail & Food Pairing Dinner

whiskey on the rocksThis year for our annual Whiskey Dinner, Max’s Oyster Bar team will be featuring classic Rye Whiskey based cocktails from the New York City historical drink book, and specifically the regional variations on the Manhattan Cocktail. Each course is paired with a classic interpretation of this delicious drink, each with their own touch made famous by bartenders past and present.

Rye whiskey is an inherently American spirit, and what better way to showcase this than with an inherently American drink? We say, there is no better way, and so we have an entire menu centered around these themes. Join us for this excellent dinner, “tour” the regions of New York City, and stay warm with Rye Whiskey.
